regex that is equivalent to perl's syntax

does python's re library have a similar capability of the perls
regular expression to
search for pattern that appears a variable number of times within the
lower and upper bounds given? For example, what is the python's
equivalent to the following perl's search string?
which seeks to find all strings with 8 characters followed by a dot
and then three more characters as in filename.txt

Actually, i need to find a pattern such as ABCDXLMNO with the
character X
repeated 5 to 8 times.
